Fifth, personal protection should be regarded as a priority for medical workers fighting against the virus.

Sixth, frontline medical workers should be able to have days off.

Seventh, provide in-time psychological counseling and assistance to medical workers to alleviate their pressure.

Eighth, local authorities should help tackle difficulties for frontline medics' family members to make sure they can work at ease.

Ninth, China will create a safer working environment for medical workers in which their legal rights will be protected.

Tenth, related departments should apply for the honor of martyr for deceased medical staff, comfort the families of the deceased and help solve their difficulties. Also, medical workers with excellent performance will get praised.
